It's because we still live in a day and age when people will treat you differently because you're gay; it's like masochism or racism. You're right that there are more important things but does that mean that we should not talk about it? I think that in the world of sport it is even harder for a gay person to come out so that's why Jason Collins' come out is important. The fact that many people say "who cares" and still take the time to write that comment shows that it bothers them somehow.
